Age-related osteoporosis in biglycan-deficient mice is related to defects in bone marrow stromal cells.


Biglycan (bgn) is an extracellular matrix proteoglycan that is enriched in bone and other skeletal connective tissues. Previously, we generated bgn-deficient mice and showed that they developed age-dependent osteopenia. To identify the cellular events that might contribute to this progressive osteoporosis, we measured the number of osteogenic precursors in… (More)
